    Great location, 2 minutes from the station. Rooms are fine and comfortable, even a hair dryer in the room. Service at reception and in the bar area was great...really friendly staff. Breakfast was a hot/cold buffet style and was excellent! Happy to recommend the Met!!!

    Room was a reasonable size for a junior room, plenty big enough for our needs and a great price. Decor was good and bed comfortable. Shower could have been more powerful but water was good and hot. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Overall very good and will stay there again.

    Nice location for centre of Leeds and train station however the rooms are very tired and dated. Very noisy can hear house keeping cleaning rooms from down the corridor and with the scaffolding up and work going on can't open the windows or the curtains. ( wasn't made aware of this or reflected in the price ). The bathroom was OK no blind on the window just some frosting that you could make out shapes through. Breakfast was good, buffet style although can ask the chef for some poached / fried eggs if that's what you like.

    As we entered the lobby we expected great things, although there was scaffolding outside the hotel frontage. We were solely disappointed! The room interior and decor was so tired and shabby the repair work was slipshod, really quite bad for a hotel costing over £110 a night. Three bus stops outside the front of the hotel which led to a very noisy night till the wee hours. The original windows have no noise barrier whatsoever. Felt dark and dingy in the room. It was like staying in a youth hostel! The bathroom was something out of an old people’s home and don’t get me started on the pillows. So bad, lumpy , felt like little stones against your head and had a crick in my neck so bad in the middle of the night I had to try sleep without the pillow. It really was quite archaic, thank god we hadn’t signed up for breakfast as well!
